An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Coupons and Faith

(Proverbs 11:28 KJV)  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

Is the stock market going to crash?  Will Social Security go bankrupt?  Will we be forced into a cashless lifestyle?  Stay tuned, it just gets more interesting.  It is interesting to us because our confidence is not in the “riches” (6239) of the economy.  We balance our check book, pay our rent and utilities, use coupons and lock our doors.  We do not panic because the federal deficit is too big.

This is not just a cliche or platitude.  This is a rock that we base our life on.
My hope is built on nothing less,
Than Jesus blood and righteousness.
So?  That is not just an old song that we used to sing.  It does not just apply to eternity.  It is a daily choice that we make.

"Used to sing" is kind of a commentary on modern churches.

As I watch congregations I am always amazed at how many people don't even try to sing.
